This issue deals with pushing the boundaries, thinking outside of the “rules” that tell us how to do things or “habits” which tell us how we’ve always done things. To that end, you will find articles on inspiration, creativity and finding new ways to reach a desired outcome.
You will also be introduced to two, yes two, histories of our member Guilds. I find these histories fascinating. Reading of how they formed and then how they have grown and changed with the times reflects the changes that we have all gone through and points to an interesting and inventive future for all of us.
We also celebrate the life and the personality of Alden Amos. He has been the spinning and fiber tools guru for so long and touched so many of us with his books, tools and wisdom that it is hard to imagine a fiber conversation or a conference without him being mentioned.
Speaking of conferences, Modesto is the host of CNCH ’16. I hope to see you there!
In the meantime, read on and enjoy.
